    Great Organization

    Pros

    Best reasons to work in traffic and parking at the Royals is friendly co workers, bosses, mostly friendly fans and the occasional free meal. Plus sometimes we get a slight behind the scenes look at the players, they’re all super cool. Especially Salvy aka El Niño. The boss tells good jokes and organizes little games and raffles to win some pretty neat prizes. They do a good job at making people feel like part of a team and including everyone even in the off season months. In my opinion it’s the best ball park in America and I’m incredibly thankful to have this job.

    Cons

    The cons of this position are standing outside in the heat or rain for long periods of time. It’s also really busy and a little chaotic directing the traffic after the game. They give you a bright vest and light to hold but there are some crazy drivers and you have to keep your head on a swivel. Not much advancement opportunity or work in the off season for this seasonal gig either.

    Pros

    Saying you work for an MLB club. Pays a little better than avg for other Mlb clubs.

    Cons

    Some of the most dishonest and untrustworthy people in the industry going all the way to the top. You will be overworked. Stressed. Brow beaten. Cronyism and loyalty only way to move up, certainly not because of merit or skill. Poor communication and ethical standards.

    "Ruthless, Cutthroat, Low Paying Cult

    Pros

    Only positive is working in baseball.

    Cons

    Beware! Ruthless, cutthroat management. Brainwashes fresh faced kids out of college. My advice would be for graduates to work for an employer that values their ideas, contributions, and most importantly pays them well
